Decision coming any moment for WSU LB target

IT WAS ONE heck a weekend for outside linebacker Nnamdi Oguayo. The 6-3, 210-pounder offered a glowing review of his Washington State official visit to CF.C moments ago, saying he was blown away by the new facilities and had a great time meeting the Cougar players and coaches. So much in fact, WSU is now in his top three and a final decision could come at any moment.

Nnamdi Oguayo was offered a scholarship by WSU early last week and wasted no time in setting up his official visit with the Cougar staff.

And the visit, he tells CF.C, was a great one.

“This weekend was awesome,” Oguayo said. “I met so many new people here and the coaching staff was amazing. I really enjoyed hanging out with the players. They were all really funny. I love the facilities too. They were newer than the ones I’ve seen before.”

FOLLOWING HIS OFFICIAL VISIT, Oguayo said the Cougs jumped up into his top three.

“I’ve narrowed things down to Washington State, Pitt and Indiana,” the Maryland product said. “This trip to WSU raised my interest in them a lot, especially the academic part of it. I had the chance to meet with some advisors and I really like how everything is laid out.”

Oguayo, who will study sports medicine in college, has taken official visits to all three schools he is currently considering.

“I’m going to go home and talk things over with my family about everything,” Oguayo. “They really want to hear about how the visit went. Once I talk to them, I’ll have a better idea of where I’m going. I’m going to decide before signing day, but my decision could come at any time.”

OGUAYO WAS HOSTED by fellow linebacker Jeremiah Allison, who did a good job of showing him around the campus.

“Hanging out with him (Allison) was one of my favorite parts of the trip,” Oguayo said. “He was telling me how great Washington State is and how it’s a not just about football around here. They focus a lot on education. This is the place to be right now.”

The high school senior also enjoyed his time meeting with WSU head man Mike Leach and some of the other coaches.

“Coach Leach told me straight up that he was happy I was able to make it out for a visit this weekend,” Oguayo said. “We were talking and he was trying to get an idea of how I could help the team out in the future.

“Leach and the other coaches like how I use my speed and my hands a lot on the field. I like putting pressure on the quarterback.”
